i-Nex: hardware information on Linux

i-Nex is a fresh hardware information reporting tool on Linux. The author was inspired by the Windows tool CPU-Z and the the GUI of i-Nex bears a strong resemblance to it. i-Nex is a very powerful tool and provides as much information as CPU-Z, if not more. Capabilities:

  • Basic information of your hardware like like CPU speed, model and L family cache sizes
  • Advanced details like the number of transistors on the die, the multiplier size, the exact voltage and TDW it uses
  • Covers GPU information, audio, drivers and more
  • Software information like distribution, desktop environment etc.
  • Xorg details and kernel information


  • i-Nex depends on gambas3 which in turn has tons of dependencies. I am not sure if anyone would want to intall so may packages just to try out a hardware reporting utility.

Install i-Nex on Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:i-nex-development-team/stable
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install i-nex
Cmdline alternatives to i-Nex on Ubuntu

$ lscpu
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
